Mozambique Maintenance & Training Facility

MF Front view

A key project for Mercy Tech Mission has been the construction of a maintenance shop for the 2350-acre ASAM farm in Mozambique, owned and operated by SAM Ministries.

The vision for this unique building is two-fold:

1) to maintain and repair the equipment and vehicles used at this project (which includes work done by ASAM and also by Mercy Air), and

2) to be used as a hands-on training facility by Mercy Tech Mission for teaching automotive mechanical repair to local young men.

Work on the Maintenance Shop project was initiated in March, 2011 with the digging of the foundations. Further progress was made in August of that year with the building of the repair pit.

Our April/May 2012 trip saw the completion of the foundations and the pouring of the concrete floors. The walls also began to go up at that time.

Work on the walls continued, and in March 2013, another MTM team arrived to help build and install the metal roof system.

The building is now nearing completion (our travel blog from the March 2014 trip starts here) and additional funds are now needed to finish finish equipping the shop so that it can be put to full use as a training and maintenance center.
